      When importing multiple documents in Web UI and clicking add properties, you have the list of files.

      Clicking "edit next" is supposed to carry all metadata over to the next file, except the title.

      If you change the document type, the metadata from the previous document is still assigned to the current document even though they don't exist for the current document type. They are then submitted to the server, which could be error-prone.

      Indeed, the changes done in NXP-25280 and NXP-27978 assumed that we never submit unrelated metadata when creating or editing a document and broke this Web UI feature. We fixed it with NXP-28349.

      • doc1 -> Picture
      • doc2 -> Note
      • doc3 -> Picture
        When I edit doc3, Then I want to have the picture specific metadata I have filled in doc1
